Arrow Darth, Burial and Resurrection

Dracula Garlic..
It is at thispoint that the candidate, portraying Hiram Abif, experiences part I of the symbolism of baptism - Death..At midnight, or low-twelve, under the cover of darkness, they remove his body from the temple grounds and take it to the brow of a hill where a grave had already been dug for the purpose, and bury him..It is at this point that the candidate, portraying Hiram Abif, experiences part II of the symbolism of baptism - Burial..

Further, he advises the workmen that even though the Master’s Word, which it had been promised they would eventually receive, has now been lost, he will devise a substitute word that will do just fine until the real word is found again..In a lecture that the candidate is to hear later on, after the conclusion of the Hiramic Legend, he is told that the body of Hiram was indeed removed from the temporary grave and returned to the temple, where it was buried in due form. But that is not what transpires at the gravesite..The Senior Grand Warden applies that grip to the cadaver, but owing to the high state of decomposition, the skin slips from the flesh, and the body cannot be raised.."What shall we do?"..And the Senior Grand Warden suggests, "Let us pray"..., the Lord can't hear you, Daniel..Say it to him..Go ahead and speak to him..It's all right..Down on your knees and to him..Look up to the sky and say it..What do you want me to say?..I do my own drilling, and the men that work for me work for me, and they're men I know..I make it my business to be there and to see their work..I don't lose my tools in the hole and spend months fishing for them; I don't botch the cementing off and let water in the hole and ruin the whole lease...
